Stack assembly equipment – basic+

  • Stack assembly equipment basic+ is used for fuel cell stack and electrolyser stack assembly
  • The main challenge in stack formation is the precise positioning of bendable components with sensitive surfaces.
  • Ruhlamat can benefit here from its many years of expertise in the production of RFID inlays, in which, among other things, several thin foils must be placed on top of each other with dimensional accuracy.
  • In addition to a semi-automated assembly solution for small series, with an annual production capacity of approx. 3,000 stacks/a (reference 330 cells), we also offer a fully automated solution for an annual production capacity of up to 50,000 stacks/a. Here, too, the focus is on scalability and the ability to upgrade the production plant at a later date.
  • Customized part feeding (magazine, single part feeding,…)
  • Easy operator access for manual operation (placing components manually)
  • Automatic stacking with automatic deviation correction system to ensure the consistency of stack manufacturing
  • Variable platform adaptable for customer specific stacks
  • Modular platform: combinable with pressing module
  • Workshops for optimization of component designs
  • Customized part feeding (magazine, single part feeding,…)

  • Stacking presses with up to 100t
  • Force/displacement controlled servo press
  • Movable pallet for easy manual stacking outside the press or easy loading of the stack into the press
  • Max. Stack size: 650mmx500x1000mm (length x width x height), others on request
  • 400mm stroke as standard (up to 750mm possible)
  • Suitable for small batch production (cycle time with 2 robots per cell: 3-4s)
  • Access to our network
  • Implementation of customized concepts
